Welcome to my blog. Peace Corps Talk Story reflects my background as well as the proposed focus of this site.
Peace Corps: I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines from 1967-69. As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer I have long planned to write a memoir about my experience. Nearly fifty years later, now is the time. This blog will be about the Peace Corps experience and writing about that experience.
Talk Story: I completed Peace Corps training in Hawaii and “Talk Story” is a term used by Hawaiians. In talk story, a person shares a story while others corroborate or add to it as it is being told. A form of oral history which is the recording, preservation and interpretation of historical information based on personal experiences and opinions.
